Ritter,

I have a lot of pictures of Canadian War Graves that I have taken in my area.

Among them are every headstone to be found in Bodelwyddan churchyard, (Kinmel Park).

If you ever need any info I'll be happy to take a look in my collection.

Interesting Brum. I looked up some of the names there and so far all of them were drafted near the wars end. I'm guessing the Spanish Flu got them. Sad that they went over seas so fast to die like that. One was only in the Army about two months. Near the end of the war Canada was whipping them over practicaly as fast as they were drafted. To be trained in the UK.

Very true.

Most of the people in there died in the nearby Canadian hospital, (a couple of women too).

One name that "jumped out" at me was Tarasevich, who was blamed for starting the riot that happened there.

There's Canadian Forestry Corps, Railway troops, there's even a 19 year -old Newfoundlander.

Tragic, really.

Brum,
Since my retirement I have developed an interest researching and writing family trees and doing military research, particularly for some of my former students who lost a grandfather in the Canadian Expeditionary Force in WWI. I have researched three so far whose names appear on our local Cenotaph. Thanks for your interest and your offer which i will keep in my files.
